I scheduled content in my Airtable account and linked it to my Instagram account using Zapier. the connection seems to be successful but nothing gets posted. When i click the ‘TEST ACTION’ button at the end of the trigger setup in Zapier, i get an error message reading “

Failed to create a http request in Instagram

Domain did not match expected domain filter ``.”

Not sure what i’m missing here, or what to do exactly. any help?

Hi there @August_ozzy,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

Before we dig deeper into this, could you please share a detailed screenshot with how your Zap is configured? Especially, the “Action” section of your Instagram action step? Please don’t include/blur out any personal information in the screenshot.

Thanks! 😊

I noticed there were 2 or 3 other Instagram apps to choose from. The one i had chosen required connection via API. So i chose another one ‘Instagram for business’ and that one didn't require an API and was able to connect to my Instagram (business) account.

But that will not support Instagram personal?

Hi there @Foxrunner,

If you want to use your personal Instagram account. I would recommend using our regular Instagram app. You can find it here:

Hopefully, this helps! 😊
